Location: Fanatic Parents’ House
Drinks are always a necessity during times of celebration!
Or Sunday nights. Whatever 😉
- Slow cooked pork (antibiotic & hormone free)
- Homemade white cheddar mac n’ cheese w/ bacon & onion topping
- House salad w/ white balsamic vinaigrette
This menu was the perfect birthday spread for The Man… pork + cheese please!
Thanks to Fanatic Mom, the pork was cooked for 6 hours at a low heat until it reached total perfection.
Crispy outside layer surrounding the moist & succulent meat inside.
This Tyler Florence recipe can’t be beat.
The homemade mac n’cheese was based on another T.Florence show-stopper and featured a sauce made from thyme & garlic infused milk,
butter & flour,
nutmeg (a Fanatic addition, which I think makes mac n’ cheese truly magical :)), salt, pepper and the most fabulous white cheddar cheese.
Don’t forget your pasta too 😀
Gotta get those greens in, no? It’s all about the balance 😉
Then topped with bacon & onions.
If there were a heaven on Earth this could quite possibly be it.
To round out the pork-heavy meal we had a fresh salad.
Dressed with a white balsamic vinaigrette featuring olive oil, oregano, salt and pepper.
Yum. yum. yum.
I think someone was a happy birthday boy 😀
And if you’re looking for a meal to impress, this pork plus mac n’ cheese combo can’t be beat.
Now it’s time to start off the week! Whole Foods cooking demo tonight 🙂
